Hi Roddy

Sorry you got the MF. Good sign you are already back to playing guitar, it took me longer. I’m back to playing and I’m making an attempt to gig again with a cover band. I have had to make some adjustments to my playing style, you may as well. Strap length had to be changed (no low-slung rockstar wannabe any more) I had to get a padded strap for my 11 lb. Les Paul (copy). I just ditched what were a lot of bad playing habits. I also switched from a Yamaha SG to a Gibson SG as a main guitar and the weight difference has made playing more comfortable and for a longer duration.

As for climate, you might find the colder weather makes playing harder, but only as you warm up. For me, gone are the days where I can just pick up a guitar and play well, I always need time to warm up. I sometimes play after doing the dishes with gloves on and making the water hot.

Good luck, keep at it and give it time
